Zoom FRC-8 overview

  • 1Description

Designed for the location-sound recordist, the F-Control from Zoom is a mixing control surface designed for the F8 and F4 multitrack field recorders. It creates a complete and professional audio rig that offers a broad spectrum of creative possibilities with complete control over sound design and mixing.

The interface provides nine 60mm faders (eight + Master) and hands-on input/output control for trim, pan, and track arming. Monitoring channel and output levels is simple with 12-segment LED meters, three user-programmable buttons, and a dedicated time-code button.

Additional controls include Track Scene Edit buttons, which provide shortcut commands to Track Name, Scene Increment, Scene Name, Notes, and False Take. The unit connects to the F8/F4 recorder via USB for a seamless and uncluttered setup, while an additional USB port lets you connect an external keyboard to quickly enter metadata while out in the field. An included 1/4" stereo cable connects the F8/F4 phone out to F-Control's phone in, so you can monitor audio via F-Control's headphone jack.

The durable metal chassis is robust enough to go anywhere and is small and light enough to fit into gear bags and backpacks. The F-Control can be powered by an optional DC power supply or via the included four AA batteries. Additionally, the unit can be USB-powered when using the F4 (not available with the F8). The F-Control ships with a stereo audio cable and a USB cable.
